Re: IMPORTANT! AlertMe and British Gas Server Shutdown

Oh wow, that's considerably worse than I was expecting! And I guess a hard reset of the hub is pointless as it won't be able to load the configuration? Exactly - the Hub really does rely upon that external server to handle all of the configuration, mainly because it was all done through the web int...

Re: IMPORTANT! AlertMe and British Gas Server Shutdown

Just out of interest - What's the expected behaviour of S&S 'locally', now that the plug has been pulled? I was under the impression that you'd still be able to arm/disarm, but 24hrs after posting the above the key fobs have stopped working (no noise on any of the fobs and no interaction with the h...

Re: IMPORTANT! AlertMe and British Gas Server Shutdown

Wowsers, yes, that's the end in the UK! Lowes Iris is still up and running in the US (no sign of that closing) but in the UK the Hive platform is knowingly not supporting those original devices. I'm thinking of getting hold of an Iris base to do some testing with, but I'm rather enjoying running my ...

Re: British Gas have been in contact!

Had a letter through the post last week to say that the Safe & Secure service was being switched off in 30 days from the date of the letter. Letter was dated 9th November, so that makes Saturday 9th December 2017 the switch-off day for S&S - I think we can guess that it'll more likely be the end of ...

Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

I did a restart with the pin but nothing changed - still flashing red ... If the Hub is looking for a configuration, it'll never find it. Looks to me that once the Hubs request an update, they discard their original configuration expecting to receive the latest version from the server, but the serv...

Re: AlertMe have been in contact!

Anyone else seeing this as well? Yup, mine noticed the server was gone a couple of days ago. End of the line for that little guy. Ah, did all of your rules stop working too? In which case, I'm guessing it called out for an update, the update failed because there was nobody to respond and now it'll ...

Re: ALERTME system

I'm afraid there is no simple alternative right now. Your best bet would be to take the offer of a Hive system, or contact support@alertme.com if you haven't seen an email about it.

Re: What other security/ alarm systems are you considering?

So far as I'm aware, you're correct. I'd already started disassembling my system to test with the XBee modules, so my Hub no longer has any working rules, so I can't confirm for certain. However, anything pre-programmed into the Hub should continue working - it just won't have any connectivity to th...

Re: Implementing a dummy server?

It's all happening here and here at the moment. Lots to do, but it's possible.

Re: Alertme camera & spares

Have a check for the IP address of the camera on your router. Once you've found that out (it'll likely be 192.168.1.3 or similar) visit that address with your browser - it should open a web page where you can twiddle with the configuration.
